If you could flip a switch and send the world back to the 80s, would you do it?

    I probably would. One thing that would make me hesitant is we're getting close to the legalization of pot and going back to smoking subpar stuff. But man I do miss arcades, action movies were they actually blow stuff up, BMX bikes.

    Some parts of Memphis were getting violent at the time like Orange Mound, South Memphis along with a lot of other urban areas in the country due to the invention of crack cocaine

    I liked Arcades & BMX bikes too,but I'm 46 and going back and I presume remaining our current age,i'd just look like a big fucking weirdo.

    would like to go back and go on a walk with our family dog from that time though.

    fuck yes I would. less people, less overall bullshit. I'm pretty sure my life would be Christian Slater in Gleaming the Cube before his brother got killed. Hell, I might even train to compete in the kumite.

    so there is 2 switches then,one to send you back to a certain time and one to make you a particular age ?

    We'll roll with that.

    Basically, think of it like this:

    You get to flip the switch to go back to the 80s . . . forever.

    You you also get to choose your age (any age from birth to your current age.)

    The 80's was the best decade for movies. RIP John Hughes.
